    Ah-mazing job

    Where to start? From the moment I contacted Lynn she was so nice and accommodating. I had a bunch of questions about a dress I wanted to buy off a buy and sell and she was no short of answers. Fast forward a couple weeks and Lynn met me in Calgary in a small gross bathroom to make sure my dream dress was able to be altered and that there were no problems with it as I was buying from somebody and not a store. We laughed and joked and got a long so easily. With the wedding coming up I had to bring it in for alterations and let me tell you there was a lot of work having to be done. Not once did she complain or make me feel bad it was actually the complete opposite. My fiancé and I really like grilled cheese sandwiches and it ended up making my dress not zip up all the way so I was an emotional wreck and she calmed me down and at the end of the day she made my dress look beautiful. She also made my a vail which matched it perfectly and held up all day. If I could describe Lynn in one word it would be amazing and I am so glad I went with her.

    So very happy!!

    Could not be happier with my dress!!! I’m getting married in a week from today and felt absolutely amazing trying it on after Lynne had worked her magic on it. The alterations made all the difference. Would highly recommend her to future brides-to-be :)

    Fast and Professional

    Lynne took me on even though I planned my wedding in under 5 months and my dress came in at the last minute. She did gorgeous custom work to raise the back of my dress which left me feeling a little over-exposed. I was really on the fence about whether it was the right choice initially, but she was so positive and excited about being able to do that kind of work that I was totally confident in my decision by the time I went back for my second fitting. The cost for my alterations was higher than average because of the custom work, but for me it was worth it. I felt absolutely gorgeous on my wedding day!

    Pro-tip: I ordered extra fabric from the supplier the day I ordered my dress, and I am so glad I did because that's what made Lynne's custom work possible.
